    Living on the coast I deal with fierce winds all spring and summer . . . this was SO helpful, thanks John!

    For wind, or early season protection and greenhouse effect, just like the plastic cloche john showed– you can use a 1 gallon milk container.

    Cut off the bottom, cut a bamboo stake in half. Place stake next to plant, and the container will stay in place with the bamboo going through the lid.

    What john showed is likely a $3+ item. The milk container will have exact same effect and most people already have them.

    Try same plants next to eachother (before summer), one with cover, one without.

    Im from south of France where we got mistral, a 120km/h wind like today. To get protection from this heavy dry wind i cover up my soil with straw to prevent water evaporation and to add some structure for my plants (5-10cm deep around the trunk)

    hey john i have been having a problem with skunks getting into my garden and actually digging up my plants and just digging holes all over my garden. do you have any tips or suggestions? i appreciate anyones input thanks

    Green onions don't like to be knocked over and bent, it can start wilting the edible part of the plant. Less importantly, it makes them less manageable, because the many leaves that survive being bent will grow strong and stay bent. They also end up crossing each other and it can become a mess. I placed vertical metal tube cages around them, it's no longer a problem lol

    cage the tomatoes and Saran wrap the cage only on the sides leaving the top open. it will protect the small plants from harsh winds.

    Windy here in SC lately too.  I hope and pray you get some good acreage one day.  Go get married and have some babies and bring up some kids that actually know that food does not come from McDonalds and drive-through windows.  God Bless and keep it up.

    john, it's me the "laundry basket gardner", I missed some of your videos, I was away visiting in a different continent. Just wanted to say that this year I have gone all out and bought grow lights and have started plants indoors. But many of my seedlings have died. I am having difficulty keeping them alive. Could you show us how to grow seedlings and info on grow lights. I feel like I have the wrong grow lights. Thanks. Shafaq007
